Beijing+20 turns 20

Women are now better off than they were 20 years ago, according to the head of UN Women.

The United Nations agency is marking the 20th anniversary of the historic Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, a landmark meeting that promoted gender equality.

A major publicity campaign is aiming to mobilize governments and citizens alike to picture a world where gender equality is a reality.

May Yaacoub asked Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the Executive Director of UN Women, about the campaign.
